The micro and macro nutrients that we obtain from our food are crucial for our overall health and wellness. Protein helps to repair damaged tissues, and is the key building block for bone, muscle, enzymes and neurotransmitters. Good fats help to balance cholesterol levels, reduce inflammation in the body, and build hormones. Complex carbohydrates fuel us with energy, and provide the body with essential fibre for healthy digestive function and cholesterol balance. Vitamins and minerals are involved in many cellular pathways, helping to boost our energy and immune function, build bone, maintain muscle health, and keep our nervous systems healthy, just to name a few roles.
At Juniper Family Health our naturopathic doctors will take the time to assess your diet and nutritional status based on your age, health concerns, and risk factors. Based on our findings, our practitioners will recommend a nutritional program tailored specifically for you.
